Multicore Web Server

  • Warren Gay


Given that the Raspberry Pi 2 has four CPU cores of bristling computing power, this chapter provides an example web server project that can use them all. Although this project uses the C libevent library in the background, a nice C++ class wraps up the the C API in a nice convenient C++ package. In this chapter we examine a web server built from scratch (apart from libevent) that is fast and lean. Most important, it can be easily extended to do just about anything the Pi can do.
